Pastor Jay continues our series on, "Life Verses."  He draws our attention to Galatians 6:14, which was the life verse of famed preacher, Billy Graham.
Pastor Phil begins a new series looking at some beloved verses of Scripture.  The first installment highlights one of Charles Spurgeon's favourite verses, Isaiah 45:22.  This verse shows that there is only one path to eternal salvation and it is found in Jesus Christ.
And as we pursue faithfulness to God in our own lives, we can rest in the grace of Jesus, remember his perfect faithfulness, and rely on his strength so we can stand firm to the end.
As disciples of Jesus Christ and as a church that bears his name, we must preach and teach and share the Word wherever we go.  In our homes, our schools, and in our circles of influence, we need to share the truth wherever and whenever we can! 
The world will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. That’s what the Bible says, and that’s the reason why it’s critical for us to “continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed….” 
Children love to imitate their heroes. Superman! Taylor Swift! Auston Matthews! But this practice is not restricted to children, and we have all observed the power of an example – good and bad.  In 2 Tim 3 the Apostle Paul talks about godly and ungodly examples. 
Adding to the solder, athlete, and farmer illustrations from the preceding verses, the Apostle Paul introduces three more word pictures to describe the important work of teaching God’s Word.
Guarding the gospel is not for the faint of heart, and words of encouragement along the way will surely help.  In our passage today, Paul presents four words of encouragement that were written for us! 
The Gathering exists to bring glory to God through lives changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ.
After charging Timothy to fan into flame the gift of God so that he could serve more effectively, Paul exhorts him to guard the gospel, the good deposit entrusted to him.  What are the implications for us?
As we open 2 Timothy together and begin this new series, we are reading Paul’s final words. This is the last letter Paul ever wrote – his last communication to Timothy and to the churches who would benefit from it – churches like ours!
In the final story of this teaching series, Jesus gives his followers hope and motivation to persist in prayer.
In this story, Jesus confronts greed and materialism and explains that true life cannot be found in money and possessions.
This is perhaps the most famous story Jesus ever told.  As we unpack it, we will see that the main point of this story is that being a true neighbour involves showing radical love and deep concern for others.
In this story, Jesus explains that while people have a variety of responses to the Word of God, only one response results in salvation and genuine life change.
Although the Gospel is foolishness to the world, it is the power of God for the believer; it is essential for our journey to Christ, and for our life in Christ.
The preservation of the saints is that continuous operation of the Holy Spirit in the life of the believer, by which the work of divine grace that is begun in the heart, is continued and brought to completion by God’s grace and for His glory.  We need this!
When God’s one and only Son was born in Bethlehem, the whole purpose was to pardon people who were living in bondage to sin, people like you and me. But why is God so eager to forgive?
Money can’t buy it, people can’t build it, churches can’t bestow it, but God promised peace.  It’s actually a two-fold promise, because the Bible speaks about peace with God, and the peace of God.  They are related but distinct in their functions.
God’s sovereignty is a major theme in the life of Joseph, and Joseph himself intends for us to interpret his life in light of God’s providence.  God wants us to see how he puts himself in these impossible situations and yet always finds a way to keep his covenant promises.
